CodeIgniter Tutorial

This is adapted from the original CodeIgniter video tutorial by Derek Jones. It is updated for CodeIgniter 2.1 and includes various additions and changes. This uses my Base CodeIgniter App as a starting point. This is a pre-configured CI setup with tweaks and additions to make CI development easier, more flexible, and fully testable.


  1. Clone this somewhere
  2. Update submodules recursively: git submodule update --init --recursive
  3. Set writable permissions on assets/cache to allow for JS/CSS minification and combination
  4. Navigate to the project root and you should see a blog view.

The master branch contains the complete finished example, thoroughly documented. The start branch takes you back to the starting point where you can create this from scratch.
